Recall of the goal box in latent learning and latent discrimination


, : Recall of the goal box in latent learning and latent discrimination. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology. B, Comparative and Physiological Psychology 36(1): 39-51

In a runway, rats recalled incidental features of the goal box which they had previously found. They modified their running speed according to the current associated reward value of the goal box. Retrieval cues for features of the goal box were intra- and extra-maze cues, not the response of running. Two goal boxes differing only in color could be discriminatively recalled by virtue of their association with 2 discriminable runways. These experiments do not confuse recall of the goal box from place learning as factors in latent learning.
